### What Did the Peasants Pay the British Landlords As Rent? What Did the British Now Want Instead and Why? - Indigo

What did the peasants pay the British landlords as rent? What did the British now want instead and why? What would be the impact of synthetic indigo on the prices of natural indigo?

The peasants were bound under a long term contract with the British planters. According to this contract,the peasants had to grow indigo on fifteen percent (15% ) of the land. All the produce had to be surrendered as rent. But when synthetic indigo was developed by Germany, the landlord did not want to grow natural Indigo. Natural Indigo was no more profitable now. The prices had fallen. Now the landlords wanted compensation from the peasants for not growing Indigo on the land for releasing them from the Indigo raising agreement.

Arun and Vijay are partners in a firm sharing profits and losses in the ratio of 5:1.  Balance Sheet (Extract)  Liabilities Amount (Rs.) Assets Amount (Rs.) Machinery 40,000 If the value of machinery reflected in the balance sheet is overvalued by 33 1/3%, find out the value of Machinery to be shown in the new Balance Sheet:  (A) ₹ 44,000  (B) ₹48,000  (C) ₹ 32,000  (D) ₹30,000  SOLUTION (D) ₹30,000  Explanation: Machinery is overvalued Value by 33 1/3% of 40,000 Here, 33 1/3% as a fraction = \frac{33\frac{1}{3}}{100} Converting the mixed fraction to an improper fraction, we get = \frac{\frac{100}{3}}{100}  = 100/300 Simplifying this, we get = 100/300 = 1/3 = 100/300 of z = 40,000-z Because, 40,000 is overvalued Value, we will minus the real value from 40,000. = "100x"/"300" + "300z"/"300" = 40,000 = "400z"/"300" = 40,000 = 40,000 \times 300/400 = z ∴ z = 30,000 4 5
